Here's your feel good blog entry for the week:
The Therapeutic Riding Academy of Knoxville on Sunday, Oct. 14 will host its annual fall festival fundraiser, which benefits children and adults with disabilities. (The organization, nicknamed TRAK, provides therapeutic horseback riding.)
The event, which runs from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Doc Butler's Farms in Karns (7316 West Emory Road), will include a demonstration lesson, pony rides, a raffle for an iPad and television, face painting, pumpkin painting, and Knox County Mayor Tim Burchet who will speak at the event. (No, I'm serious. How do you think I found out about this? Yeah, spin doc Michael “Big Sexy” Grider sent over the release.)
This seems like a pretty cool thing and if mayor cheapskate can show up and donate some time and coin, you can, too.
There. I feel better already. For more information check out the organization's website right smack here.
